Melody est une chatte à poil court, gris argenté. Elle est douce, calme et timide. Elle était auparavant dans une maison avec beaucoup d'autres chats et la femme qui avait ces minous ne les a pas tous sociabilisés. En conséquence Melody a peur des gens et garde ses distances même si elle aime être près des gens afin d’observer et prendre part à l'action. Parfois, elle accepte les caresses, mais en général elle n’est pas à l'aise d'être touchée. Il est fréquent pour les chats comme Melody de devenir progressivement socialisés et de développer une relation 'exclusive' avec les gens. Cette transformation est plus susceptible de se produire si le chat est dans un environnement familial où les gens prennent le temps d'interagir et de construire lentement la confiance de l'animal. Melody est habituée d’être avec d’autres chats et apprécie leur compagnie. Melody a besoin d'une maison calme, sans bruit ou activité. Si vous aimez les défis pour être récompensé à plusieurs reprises avec de l'amour et de l'appréciation, considérez Melody.

Melody is a silver grey short-haired female. She is sweet, quiet and timid. She was formerly in a home with many other cats and the woman who had these kitties did not socialize them. As a result Melody is fearful of people and though she will keep her distance, she likes to be in the same area as people, watching and taking in the action. She will accept caresses at times, but in general is still not comfortable being touched. It is not unusual for cats like Melody to gradually become socialized and to bond well with people. This transformation is more likely to occur if the cat is in a home environment where the people take time to interact and slowly build the animal's trust. Melody is used to being with other cats and enjoys their company. Melody requires a quiet home without a lot of noise and activity. If you like to be challenged and eventually rewarded many times over with love & appreciation, consider Melody.

About Animal Rescue Network/Reseau Secours Animal

About Our Rescue Group...

The Animal Rescue Network's mission is to bring about a day when no unwanted animals are destroyed in shelters or pounds, and when every cat and dog can be ensured a happy life in a good home.

We are the largest no-kill shelter in Quebec, run entirely by volunteers. We receive no funding of any kind and rely entirely on private donations to sustain and care for all the animals at our shelter.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold weekly adoption clinics at pet supply stores throughout the Montreal area, and the South Shore to find permanent homes for our cats and dogs.
We'd love to meet you at our next adoption clinic!

At our last adoption clinic, we had 5 cats adopted!

  • Our Adoption Process...

    All new adoption homes are carefully screened to determine if they are suitable. There is an adoption fee that includes the sterilization, initial vaccination of every animal, testing for FIV and FeLV of all cats at the shelter, and a 21 days trial period. A contract is always signed between the ARN and the adopter for their protection. A follow-up by an ARN adoption coordinator is often done either by telephone or by visit, and we also offer help/cousel for the life of the cat.
